Proof That Bella Hadid Loves This French-Girl Hair Trend

Fringe, unless it’s the clip-in kind, can be intimidating, but that doesn’t stop the age-old question from bubbling up every few months: “Should I get bangs?” Since nearly every celebrity has tried their hand at the risky style, there’s no shortage of places to draw inspiration. With so many options to choose from and countless styles to request, why shouldn’t you experiment with fringe?

If you’re still not convinced bangs are the one haircut you have to try at some point in your life, we’ll let Bella Hadid — and her entire bang evolution — take it from here. Being a budding supermodel, Hadid gets to try a rainbow of different looks while on the clock, including ones most of us would never dare, like matching bleached hair and brows. But out of all the runway looks, it’s her ever-evolving bangs that stand out as Hadid’s favorite to rock, whether she’s working or off duty.

Now, she’s taking yet another crack at the timeless trend with what we think are her best bangs yet. But don’t let us sway your judgement — see for yourself, ahead. Click through to check out Hadid’s best bang looks.

Back in October 2016, Hadid debuted these curtain, baby bangs. Sitting an inch or so above her brow, Hadid immediately proved to the world that this is the look she rocks best.

Several months later, celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin made a house call to Hadid’s apartment — with sharpened shears in hand. Still, we’re convinced this blunt cut was a total fakeout.

Five months later, Hadid showed up to the CFDA Awards with a Scarface -inspired crop. But this wouldn’t be the first time Michelle Pfeiffer’s iconic lob and bang combo came back in the spotlight…

If you haven’t heard, blunt micro-fringe is in — and Hadid knows it.

Dare we say it: These were Hadid’s best bangs, yet. In preparation for a new Dior campaign, the model debuted this new cut on Instagram. Sadly, just as we predicted, these — like most of the above — are clip-in extensions. Still, that won’t stop us from copying the look ASAP.

When you’re Bella Hadid, you can get a minor trim and call it whatever you want. This time, it’s brand-new “baby fringe” courtesy of hairstylist Sam McKnight. Not to be confused with baby — or micro — bangs, Hadid’s face-framing layers are a subtle way to add movement to an old haircut.

The model dusted her fringe again for a quick trip to Paris. Nothing says French-girl cool quite like a fresh set of wispy bangs.

At the Michael Kors Spring 2019 launch event, Hadid went for shaggy bangs, which grazed her eyebrows and framed her cheeks.

Hadid’s most recent set of bangs — a choppy, jet-black micro set — is her most “futuristic” look yet. Although we’re pretty sure these bangs are courtesy of a wig, we’re convinced that Bella should consider getting a similar chop IRL.
